About us

Arethusa was one of the first Recruiting Firms established in Italy specialised in Middle and Senior Management. This is thanks to the experience acquired by the Partners and Senior Consultants of Arethusa in the HR departments of leading companies.
Present on the market since 1990, it owes its success to the application of the direct research method (initially reserved for senior management roles) to any role level, and the ability to transversally follow various industries.
A success proven by the extremely high level of client satisfaction. Clients who have employed our services for years, who know and respect our enthusiasm and the expertise that distinguishes us in all phases of personnel research and selection.
From the very first meeting.
